Veteran drum ‘n’ bass duo Calyx & TeeBee (check out their 2012 Big Shot Guest Mix) will mix FABRICLIVE 76. Set for release on July 21, the 34-track collection is overflowing with upfront tunes and classics from the likes of Break, Calibre, Optical and Blu Mar Ten. Calyx & TeeBee will play a launch party at Fabric with a two-hour set on August 8 along with Hazard, Break, Culture Shock, Hybris and Frankee, with MCs AD, GQ and SP:MC with Butterz in the club’s Room 1.
Obligatory press release gush from Calyx & TeeBee: “We recorded the mix using 3 CDJs. We spent a long time considering the selection and how we wanted the journey to evolve – we wanted it to reflect what we love both inside and outside of the club environment. We’re really happy with the ebb and flow of the mix, which in turn is down to the countless producers making some sublime and immensely varied drum & bass we’re into at the moment.”

Is this the year of the Ram? We’re asking because in just a few months the venerable UK-based drum ‘n’ bass imprint has become the new home for Calyx & TeeBee (check their Big Shot Guest Mix here) and Toronto’s Rene LaVice. One of the hottest DJs on the North American scene, LaVice recently turned heads when he dropped his Dimensions 5 EP. This week LaVice upped the ante by releasing his Absolute Monster EP on Ram, a release that features four dance floor monsters. On his exclusive 36-track Big Shot Guest Mix, LaVice crafts an unforgettable 36-track session featuring his new tunes as well as rollers from Calyx & Teebee, DC Breaks, Total Science, Delta Heavy (check their Big Shot Guest mix here) and Noisia.

Well established in the drum ‘n’ bass scene for over 15 years, London’s Calyx & TeeBee are taking their music to the next level in 2012, signing with the mighty Ram Records and working on the followup to their acclaimed 2005 full-length, Anatomy. The pair just dropped a hot double single, “Scavenger” / “Stepping Stones,” and they’re hard at work on their sophomore full-length. You can hear the pair’s latest tracks on their phenomenal Big Shot Guest Mix, featuring as-yet unreleased bangers from label mates Culture Shock, Hamilton and DC Breaks as well as cuts and remixes from Gridlok, Alix Perez and Ulterior Motive & Hybris.
